Exterior design usually implies complete outdoor renovations, but that doesn’t have to be the case when it comes to adding beautiful decor and modern furniture to your patio. There are plentiful stylish and waterproof furnishings, perfect for an outdoor area to entertain guests or relax with your loved ones. With these first-class modern outdoor furniture suggestions, your patio will be the place everyone loves to gather.
A Wicker Sectional.
Wicker is great for decorating your patio with modern outdoor furniture. Not only is it water and weather-resistant, but it is also upscale and contemporary. While other wicker furniture sets are commendable, a sectional is ideal for providing plentiful seating when entertaining guests. For a fun and stylish presence in your backyard, use contrasting color schemed cushions against the wicker. A pop of bright colors is a highly popular exterior decor trend right now, so turquoise or lime green cushions with a black wicker sectional would spice up your patio with a modern and classy look.
Half-Moon or Full-Moon Day Bed.
Many people associate day beds with a loft or brightly-lit space, so why not bring one out into the fresh open air? There are many manufacturers who produce sturdy, water-resistant day beds designed especially for outdoor spaces. Stray away from the rectangular lounge-chairs and select a circular day bed for more modern design. The full-moon shape is great for full-body lounging, while the half-moon shape acts as a comfortable couch with a matching ottoman. Snuggle up this fall on your day bed with a warm blanket to enjoy a crisp outdoor evening.
Adding an ottoman to your outdoor living area will make you feel like you’re on vacation in your very own backyard space. Having a private, quaint place to relax with your feet up will make you never want to leave home. For a modern and professional appearance, match your ottoman to your other outdoor furniture and decor.
One of the most simple ways to add modern outdoor furniture to your patio is to place a fire table amidst it all. In the center of your seating is the perfect spot for a glowing feature that will offer warmth and lighting to you, your family, and your guests. This luxury amenity is also great for acting as a coffee table to set drinks and other items on during conversation. From cooking capabilities to a prospective campfire element, a fire table will make your backyard feel more charming, while standing out as a unique element.
Casual Bistro Table or Dining Set.
A patio isn’t complete without a place to wine and dine yourself and your company. The sleek design with only three pieces won’t overtake your entire patio, and it still provides a pleasant place to wind down in the refreshing fall air.
However, if a bistro table is too small for your family or you just love to entertain, try embellishing your patio with a full dining set. Ideal for family dinners or exciting nights, a full length table provides a large space for food - the staple of every gathering.
Regardless of the type of table you choose to incorporate onto your patio, both are available in a multitude of materials from teak wood and wicker, to lightweight steel and aluminum. Teak sets contain high oil content, so the surfaces resist rotting, warping, and splintering. Wicker and steel are durable and add a luxurious contemporary style.
